​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Energy savings mean a sustainable business for Deutsches Milchkontor ​

When separating milk German dairy Deutsches Milchkontor obtained a 30 percent reduction of energy consumption with the Encapt technology from Tetra Pak.

Separation is a key technology for German dairy cooperative DMK, Deutsches Milchkontor. Being able to separate as much fat as possible from whey is a crucial part of the process in the company’s mozzarella cheese plant in Nordhackstedt, Germany. When the company decided to invest in a new separator, the choice fell on a Tetra Pak® Separator H75.
Tetra Pak® Separators with AirTight technology are already among the most energy-efficient machines on the market. But the machine can lower operating costs and environmental impact even further with the brand-new energy-saving Encapt™ technology “Sustainability is central in our company. It’s very important for us to make installations with good CO2 print and good energy savings,” says Rainer Andresen, Plant Manager.​
